    Possible trade for big Pat?

    Hopefully this hasn't been posted yet...



    With Pat Williams unable to perform at the start of training camp because of his weight and physical condition, people in the know say the Vikings should consider trying to trade the defensive tackle to the Cowboys for defensive end Greg Ellis. Williams plays best in the 3-4 defensive alignment. -- St. Paul Pioneer Press

    I'm not sure what to think of this...

    Who are people "in the know"? Staff, administration, sports writers ?? Come on, give us more than that. I have no real ties to pat, so it doesn't bother me either way.

    If they have somebody to step up and somewhat fill his shoes, then I guess I wouldn't have a problem with trading him for the right player. It doesn't sound like we should put much into it though. Just another bored sport's writer looking for something to write about that people might actually take interest in.

    No! I don't think we want another DE. We drafted Kenechi and Erasmus in the first round, so that would kind of be detrimental in my opinion. Plus, we need our fat Pat to plug up the middle and let K-Will do his thang.

    This tells me that they really know shit. 'Oh, he's a big guy, he must play best as a NT in a 3-4 system. They should trade him.

    They should shut up.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Hogwash, highly unlikely.

    Did you notice that the 'big name' sports sites started having a 'rumors' section after Florio's site became popular and started receiving recognition?

    No chance. IMO he was the cornerstone of our defense last year, even though we gave up a lot of rushing yards, his presence in the middle was huge.

    We gotta keep Big Pat, at least one more season, possibly two.
